Suggestions on a leveling kit

I just want to level my F350 and not mess with the rear blocks. Any ideas?

From what I've read, if you have an F-350 you don't have to swap out the rear blocks. They already are taller than an F-250.

Yea that's why I don't want to mess with them, but I was trying to figure it what to go with in the front to keep it level. To to it off I find that the drivers side is half an inch lower that the passenger.

Well I have the plow package springs so that gave me an inch already, so I just went with the Skyjacker 1" lower coil spacer. I still have a 1/2 inch rake which is perfect because a tow a small landscape trailer and don't want it to squat when I hook up.

There are different sized blocks for every application. They are sooo easy to install. I did everything in 2 hours. Also with 1", I didn't need longer shocks and my alignment stayed within specs.

Skyjacker 1" and 2"
Readylift 1.5"

Forgot to tell you that I have a 1/2 inch difference between drivers and passengers side as well. You can't tell just by looking at it, even after the lift.

Superlift makes 2" coils that will even out that front end from side to side.

On my 2011 F350 Lariat CC, I have the Daystar 2 1/2" front leveling kit. Part # KF09119BK. No drama, looks good, all level without the bad ride of a lift kit.

I was looking at the Newton lift they sell on Ebay. Not trying to go cheap on a 60 thousand dollar truck, but I want tires and wheels so I need to keep the cost down and maybe up grade the lift down the road.

I have a f350 with the plow package also. If I were to put a readylift 2.5" on the front, it would be too high?
